General Discussion

Hello all,

This is a post for us to get the community aware of BD Earth Arena. It’s on iOS and android app stores, it’s a simpler, faster paced version of the original BD. My hope is that now with this forum and this post, we can get new players to the game. Many of us vets want new players that want to learn to play and most importantly want to continue playing. Currently, we are almost halfway through the era. I’d say now is a good time to join to learn to play, but really anytime is a good time. I hope some of the vets see this too and add on their expertise and opinions. And if you have questions about the game we’d be more than happy to answer them! We also have a line chat dedicated to the game if you want to get more involved with the EA community.

Thanks!
Dingo

:nauseated_face: Earth Arena

I tried EA for 2 eras, I believe the first one was the 1st draft era and second one was me just randomly joining alliances and goofing around. From my experience the main issue the game is plagued with is cheating, and that too open cheating. Hopefully now that we have a team which is working behind it we can see EA evolve into something better.
Also the lack of mechanics like spies and nukes does not interest me into continuing to play for long. That’s just my two cents.

I remember trying it in the early beta, wasn’t for me back then. But I’m willing to give it another try :slight_smile:

Any suggestion for a newbie?

I would suggest that you get involved with our line chat! It’s a great way to meet the rest of community, ask questions, find teammates, etc. and obviously place in game! Finding or creating an alliance is easy and the gameplay is self intuitive. The more advanced techniques are not closely guarded secrets either. Most of us vets are helpful with teaching newer members the ropes and would love the opportunity to teach and expand our player base.
My line is dingo115 if you would like to be added to the ea line chat or just have more questions


#7

drop the invite link here so that anyone interested can join.


#8

Link is right here

I hope this link finds and serves you all


#9

Is there any other way than Line to get in contact? :stuck_out_tongue:
I got like 4 messaging apps already, but if not I’ll get it.

I’ve made a colony :slight_smile:


#10

We also a discord but it’s hardly used truthfully. Line is much easier when it comes to chatting and forming teams


#11

Bet my Battle sim for this is still hanging around somewhere xD


#12

To be honest I already use too many messaging apps, and considering the content of the game chat, I am not sure I’d like more of that O.o

Jeesh folks, contain a little :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

the chats are very welcoming to new players!


#15

They are! They only explicitly threatened to sexually assault chat members in 3/3 chats I checked on the logins I did :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

Thats a true point. I think an ea member called rainbow brought that up in a discussion on this forum somewhere. If we had a chat admin or something I’m sure it could be fixed. However since we don’t have one, I ask you overlook the nonsense lol


#17

Well in all seriousness, we will probably formulate some kind of policy there.

As for my involvement with the community, what the admins etc do is up to them, but I may join in later. Right now though I’ve a lot of work to do, including getting EA under the Gato flag as well soon =)


#18

Chicken you won’t.:stuck_out_tongue:


#19

Yes, we have your sim still


#20

Simmen what did you place as?

For Earth arena to stand out, it needs a couple things
-First, a border system for alliances. It isn’t an essential feature, to say, but as a relatively bad player myself, the whole outpost/border thing takes a bit to grasp, as they initially seem useless. Defined borders for alliances could help new players understand the system, as they would be more conscious of outpost placing, as well as infringement on their territory. It also helps strategically, kind of like a tactical map for territory placement, troop movement, and enemy alliance territory
-It also needs to fix its cheating, of course
-And finally, it would do well with chances for friendly interaction, like a forums. The only reason I played supermechs for more than 2 weeks was because of the community and friends I made in the clan, who over a year later, I still talk to. And, for many of you guys, I am assuming the same. Good communities keep people around. So if it doesn’t exist, an easily accessible friend and chat system would do well.
